Whereas other external hard drives might be durable, the ADATA HD830 is virtually indestructible. It features a robust triple-layer construction and sturdy aluminum exterior that can withstand 3000kg of downward pressure. What’s more, it’s waterproof and dustproof.
A Knight in Shining Armor
The HD830 is crafted with a boldly grooved surface with a sandblasted finish and two sturdy side columns that give it the look of a true warrior.
The tough aluminum exterior isn’t just capable of surviving nasty drops and blunt force, but can also handle 3000kg of downward pressure. That’s roughly equivalent to the combined weight of fifty average-sized people.
Water and Dust are No Match for This Warrior
Sometimes the unexpected will happen and when it does, the HD830 is ready! The HD830 exceeds the IP68 rating and is dustproof and waterproof. If you accidentally drop it in water, no worries. It can handle submergence in 2 meters of water for 120 minutes.
* Full protection only applies when the port cover is firmly closed.
If it’s tough enough for the military, you know it’s made to last. The HD830 meets the U.S. Military’s MIL-STD-810G 516.6 standard and can survive falls from up to 1.22 meters.
Robust Three-Layer Construction
A three-layered structure provides complete protection. It includes a tough silicone casing, shock-absorbing buffer, and cushioned mounting that keeps the drive in place.
Dropping or shaking a HDD may result in bad sectors and errors. The HD830 features shock sensors that will alert you when an impact or vibration is detected with a blinking red light.
